Priyanka Chopra Continues American Push on ‘Nightline’

Priyanka Chopra is continuing her push to take over America as she appeared in an interview for a segment of ‘Nightline’. The CAA-repped actress (the first Bollywood star to ever be represented by mega-agency American agency CAA…) first began the push with her foray into the music world. She had collaborations with Pitbull on the single ‘Exotic’, previously released the single ‘In My City’ with will.i.am, and has even appeared on the opener for Thursday Night Football.

Priyanka has recently been announced as the face of Guess over the holidays and is getting ready to drop yet another single on American audiences. But is it working? She tells the British interviewer during the segment that America is the ‘Land of Dreams’ and a multicultural melting pot so making it in America is still a possibility.

In an interesting segment surely meant to demonstrate her ‘All-American Appeal’, Indian Chopra squeals with delight when she says American burger chain Jack in the Box and is then shown with a burger in hand. Has her play for American appeal gone too far? Will she alienate her Indian and international followers with this grab for American popularity? It remains to be seen, but her handlers are certainly pushing her crossover appeal pretty hard.

If you want to see exactly what Priyanka has to say regarding her American push, the ‘Nightline’ segment can be seen here.

Priyanka Chopra, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson, Oh My!

Wow, Priyanka Chopra seems to be very serious about her burgeoning music career and it shows!  The star has been in Los Angeles promoting her latest single ‘Exotic‘, featuring Pitbull, and took time out to meet with former ‘American Idol‘ judge and music mogul Randy Jackson.  It just so happened that another former ‘American Idol‘ judge wandered by and that judge was none other than Paula Abdul herself!

What did Priyanka learn from Mr. Jackson and Ms. Abdul?  We don’t know for sure, but it must be some good advice for her to tweet “Thank you for the advice @yo_randyjackson… Here’s to taking over the world! Was lovely meeting you” on July 31!

Priyanka sure has been keeping herself busy stateside as not only is she promoting her single ‘Exotic‘, she’s also promoting Disney‘s latest animated film ‘Planes‘ with co-star Dane Cook.  The star-studded cast not only features the voice talents of Cook and Chopra, but such stars such as Julia Louis Dreyfuss, Cedric the Entertainer, Brad Garret, Stacy Keach, Terri Hatcher, Val Kilmer, and John Cleese, among others.  Priyanka lends her voice to the plane Ishani, a Pan Asian champion from India.  Ishani is also the love interest for the main plane in the film Dusty Crophopper, voiced by Dane Cook.

As if that wasn’t enough, Priyanka also got her own tasty treat at West Hollywood dessert shop Millions of Milkshakes called ‘The Exotic‘, of course.  Not content merely to have a treat named after, the hardest working woman in Bollywood also hopped behind the counter to lend a hand in making the frosty beverage which consists of bananas, almonds, caramel sauce with vanilla ice cream and a dash of Mr. Pink ginseng drink (What, no mango?!?!). Priyanka joins a list of celebrities including Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus, Lindsey Lohan, Katy Perry, Pamela Anderson, and Bollywood sexpot Malika Sherawat to have their own namesake milkshakes at the WeHo spot.  Not bad company Ms. Chopra, but perhaps you can find time in your working vacation to see some of the sights Tinseltown is more famous for!
